Oh hey, friends! Today I’m super excited to share with you another room reveal. This room just might be my favorite room in our entire house. When we first looked at our house, we knew that the kitchen was going to need a lot of love, however, the possibilities were endless on what we could do to transform the kitchen. Now that we’ve finished our kitchen, well for the most part, I’m excited to give share with you our transformation from 90’s kitchen to a modern farmhouse kitchen.
Modern Farmhouse Kitchen:
The Design //
When it came to designing our kitchen, having white cabinets was a must for both of us. White cabinets just helped make this space feel bright and clean. To make the white cabinets pop, flat black hardware needed to be added to all of the drawers and doors. Brad and I have very similar design tastes and we both knew that adding the pop of black would be just the right amount of contrast the kitchen needed. Having an all white kitchen is great, however, we wanted the space to still feel warm and welcoming versus sterile. Speaking of adding black in our white kitchen, black bar stools were the perfect addition to this space. I love how they just pop against the white bottom cabinets. These are metal bar stools that are actually really comfortable to sit in.
The Furniture //
Our kitchen table was a fun DIY project that Brad did. Since we made the decision to do darker gray floors, the kitchen table needed to stand out rather than blend in. I loved the idea of doing a pedestal based table that would expand into a larger table for when we have guests. At our old house, Brad and I sat at our counter for dinner and only used our large dining room table for when we had people over. Now that we have Henry, I wanted to create an eat-in space that we would sit around and have dinner together as a family.
This table popped up on Facebook Marketplace and I knew we needed to have it. Granted, the table did not look like it does now. When we picked up the table, it was a light oak finished and “distressed” aka not taken care of. As far as our image for the table, we knew we wanted a white bottom so that it would contrast against the dark floor but we also knew we didn’t want it completely white since it would blend right in with the kitchen. So we decided to do a dark gray top and black metal chairs to match the bar stools.
The Decor //
As far as decor goes, pulling in pieces to help make the kitchen feel modern farmhouse was a must. Cool tones such as black, white, silver, and gray were used to help the room feel modern. While galvanized metal, faux plants, open shelving, and copper decorative pieces allowed the room to feel farmhouse without giving it too much of a rustic/farmhouse feel. I love that the open shelving will allow me to display certain pieces that would be hidden in a cabinet. Whenever you are decorating any space, you want to make sure the room gives off your personality and I feel that the kitchen reveals ours.

I hope you enjoyed a peak inside our modern farmhouse kitchen. There are still some finishing touches that need to be done such as painting the trim around our sliding glass door, staining the open shelves, adding a backsplash, and replacing the counter tops, but for now it’s perfect to us. Brad and I are going to be working on a post on how we painted our oak cabinets so be sure to stay on the look out for that post. I’ll hopefully have it published the beginning of September.

In the meantime, it would mean the world to me if you would share this post by posting it on Facebook and saving to Pinterest. Have a great rest of your week, friends!
